Change both front and rear pads?

I got about 5000 miles left on my front brake pads, and 19,000 miles on the rears according to idrive. Do you guys usually change both front and rear pads? I am thinking of getting some lower dust/aftermarket pads and rotors. Thinking of getting the EBC Ultimax rotors with cool carbon pads. Any other suggestions. This is driven primarily on the street.

Great Street performance pad-you can't go wrong- you need to order before
our March 30/30 Sale ends!

We sell other brands but the CC is always our first choice.

If you have iDrive, it should be in the settings menu, vehicle settings, service info.

If switching from stock pads to aftermarket, do I need to change all four pads?

Porterfield R4S and Stoptech Street Performance are excellent pads as well.

It's a good idea to replace all four to keep the brake bias in check.
